Nils Bildt: The expert who never was

I've often wondered if the talking heads on U.S. news stations have any more expertise than our local barber or the guy (or gal) sitting across from us in the bar. As it turns out, my doubts have again been confirmed. The“Swedish Defense and National Security Advisor” interviewed by Bill O’Reilly on Fox News this week is entirely unknown in his native country, with no connections to either the nation’s defense or security services. For that matter, he hasn't even lived in Sweden for over 20 years.
